Breathe deeply and simply rest.
For a moment, do not think about what you must do later today.
Simply allow yourself to gather strength from God's love, to be replenished by God's mercy, invigorated by God's very presence.
Give thanks to God for this energizing love.
O Jesus, you would fill a soul even weaker than I, with even greater graces, provided that such a soul abandoned itself with absolute confidence to Your infinite mercy.
St. Therese of Lisieux
Therese knew that Jesus was ready to give himself totally to those souls who abandoned themselves to God’s “infinite mercy.” As you pray today, ask Jesus for the grace of self-abandonment.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
